Gina K Design April Release Inspiration Hop Day 3!!

Hey Ya'll! Welcome back to our last day of the hops, but not last of the inspiration I hope! Today we have a stamp set called What's The Dirt?...perfect for all the gardeners...AND gardener wannabe like me! I touch something green and it dies, except on my cards, LOL! I have combined a stamp sets this time, Melanie's newest set, Branching out with What's The Dirt for today:



Love how these two sets worked together! I did some paper piecing this time on the flower pots and little pair of gloves from the What's the Dirt set, and just colored the flowers and tools quickly with copics and then just put it all together, that was it! Fun card to send to someone that you might not have talked to in awhile!

Ready for all the gorgeous eye candy my fellow DT have for you? I cant wait to see too! Dont forget, leave comments on all the blogs because Gina is giving away a stamp set once again!
